Alex arrives!

Posted by Judith Potts, 23/02/2012

Hello! I arrived at Helsby Hillside Primary School in Cheshire yesterday afternoon and got a warm welcome from the children in the Reception class. They told me their names and a bit about themselves and sang me their song about being twinned with a school in South Africa. They are busy writing letters to post to their new friends in Germany. I met the two reception bears called Harry and Harriet.

We went to visit Mitcheldean Church today, so the children could find out about the things you find in a church. We looked at the Altar, pulpit, font and lecturn and Father David showed us the clothes he wears in church. It was very interesting.

Alex visits London - Alex besucht London

Posted by Stefanie Francis, 25/01/2012

Last weekend one of the girls took me to London to visit her aunty. We had a fantastic time and saw many sights of the capital such as Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, the London Eye, The Globe Theatre and The Tate Gallery. We even went on a cruise on the river Thames, took a Tube (that's what they call the underground) and went on a Red Double-decker Bus. We also got to ride in a London Taxi and the driver even let me sit in the front, so I could see where we were going!

On Thursday last week Class 3 went on a walk to Mitcheldean Church, where the children drew sketches of the church. That gave me a chance to have a look around the village of Mitcheldean. I saw many old houses, the local supermarket and of course the church.

What an exciting week I had. I went to stay with some of the children in Class 3 and they took me to swimming and gymnastics and played lots of games like Hide and Seek and Snap with me. One of the boys took me to the Fish and Chips Shop so I could try a traditional dinner of Fish and Chips. It was delicious!
